I talk to so many people who have the same hangups with scripture. And this is okay. In fact, I'd say it's healthy. If you have everything about God figured out because of words you've read on a page, you are in a very, very dangerous place in your beliefs.

Existing as a human being, with all of its 25,000 genes, complex proteins, interconnected minuscule cells that keep us in homeostatic balance on a millisecond by millisecond basis, is impossible. I can hardly build something with legos, let alone think up and create a human.

Polkinghorne's entire life could be described as something of a double helix, with religion and science entwining, constantly make contact and often providing mutual support.

Rollins says that Jesus' cry from the cross was a point at which he experienced "a profoundly personal, painful existential atheism."

Apologetics is the defense of faith through reason. Who are health reform apologists if not the politicians? They are the academics, the think-tank researchers, policy wonks, and industry experts.
